Quilting in the Hearts of a Family

This is so exciting for me!  I hope you’ll find yourself feeling welcomed everytime you stop by.  I’ve a few pictures to show you but first a story:

Last year a customer of mine brought her friend in.  Her friend, Connie, was diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer.  Our mutual friend was helping her through the initial shock of the diagnosis.  Since then Connie has made three quilts for each of her grandchildren, despite chemotherapy and radiation!

The last one was finished at the beginning of April and she gave them to each of her grandchildren at Easter.

I’m amazed at the tenacity of the human spirit.  Despite her illness Connie is living life.  She spends time with her husband and family, travels, has decided to take quilting classes…she even bought herself a very lovely leather jacket because she felt she deserved it.  When looking death in the face I hope to face it with half as much dignity and strength!  Not to mention joy!  Look at her enjoying her grandchildren!!
